I didn't paint my sunroof as I have another rust free one and the difference between the faded sunroof and painted roof is mad!

I found the same with my metallic mint one, in the sun it used to look like silver with a hint of bluey green - now it looks like a metallic bluey green.

Went for a spin in the polo today :) took a few photos, is looking lush! it gets a fair amount of attention now, a nice guy in his r32 stopped in the road to tell me how awesome it sounded! :D haha

probably not going to be many updates till winter now, plan on enjoying it this year. the plan is to put all my money into this workshop for now, concrete is getting laid friday and the workshop will be built shortly after :D then its a case of equiping it and installing extraction systems/ filters etc and once its built im probably going to be soooo busy with full resprays it will be insane! :)

going to collect as much stuff as i can, when winter rolls round it will be off the road, engine out, respray bay, rebuilt engine and make the bay look like new. as well as decide if im going balls out for a g60, but havnt decided yet. anyway heres a few pics, enjoy :)

Looks lovely! That colour really comes alive in the sun. The wheels look a bit too spaced out IMO, but suit the car really well.

Thanks dude! :) I love it! Stands out like a sore thumb between other cars because of the colour, it's under a cover when not in use so hopefully it shouldn't fade :D

I'm actually really glad you said that mate, I couldn't decided if I liked them or they looked too wide!

Going to get 10mm spacers for the rear to bring them in as they are 20mm at the moment! And hopefully after some measurements get 10mm machine of the front hub on the wheel

Thanks :)
Taylor

Looks amazing dude! I think it looks good with the spacing, a little more tough :D

The back might need 5mm taking off spacing wise but still looks awesome
